  1. 3 wins - against the bottom 3 in the league. Let's see what happens against any team that's slightly better. I feel another run of losses is coming.
  2. I wasn't suggesting everyone wants LJ gone. Just that it is irrelevant as SL doesn't really care. He decides on what he thinks, not the opinion of the supporters.
  3. I have no anti-LJ agenda, in fact I quite like him and do believe he genuinely wants to be a city legend. I just don't believe he has the ability to get us promoted, doesn't have a clear plan, has no idea how to stop the losing streaks and is getting too easy a ride from the Lansdowns.
  4. And we all know kind old Uncle Steve will give his mate another season, regardless of what the fans may want.
  5. I thought VAR was going to be a good idea. Now it's being used I hate it. Using a laser to work out the striker's nose hair was offside wasn't what I had expected. Technology is good but the people using it aren't allowed to use common sense when employing it. Please bin it as it's killing the excitement of scoring.
  6. When the summer window closed my expectations for this season were frankly pretty low. We spent most of our funds on the three Chelsea players who were already here last season. We were crying out for two quality forwards and didn't get them. Afobe was a pleasant surprise that sadly didn't last long. Our start, in terms of points, was another pleasant surprise and suggested we might achieve, even without those forwards we so obviously needed. However we are now about where I expected at the start of the season. It does feel to me that we've spent a lot of money to end up with a bloated squad of average players. Apart from Eliasson we have no-one who excites in the final third. It looks to me like we will struggle to make any further big sales and will have to economise a bit to stay within FFP. So get used to being a mid-table Championship team for the foreseeable. It's better than a L1/champ yo yo team which is what we've been for many years before this recent improvement.
  7. Nagy and Massengo only want to play safe sideways or backwards five yard passes. Not good enough. They need to take the initiative and play forward.
  8. The worst , most depressing thing about yesterday was that it just confirmed what I'd expected to see when I set out for AG. Brentford play fluid attacking football. They have talented individuals who have been organised into a team that is very entertaining to watch. At the same time as selling several players into prem teams. We are trying to emulate them but in reality are light years behind. We have recruited a lightweight midfield of grafters and have no game plan that can accommodate the two talented players we do have (NE and KP). LJ doesn't have the ability to deliver on the vision which frankly is a team like Brentford. I'm not convinced that the recruitment team has the ability to spot the right talent or mix of players either. We are undoubtedly nothing more than a mid-table side. To get beyond that we need a massive step up and a leader who can give the players some clarity and consistency in the game plan. I don't think we will be able to achieve that with the current team of coaches.
  9. We are clearly smack bang in the middle of another one of LJ's horror runs. It always feels like they will go on forever but eventually he strings a few wins together and it gets forgotten. It is very frustrating but we will just have to grin and bear it. SL isn't one to act in haste and I think he really doesn't want to sack him. I can see the crowds dwindling now and after today I can think of many less frustrating ways to spend my time.
  10. Really puzzled that Rodri got brought on instead of Semenyo. Can only assume that AS is definitely off on loan so they don't want to risk an injury. Why give Rodri time if he's off in a few days?
  11. Brentford put 7 past them so can't get too excited by one good half from us.
  12. Yeah that's right - we need someone in to break Kalas' jaw again.
